I graduated from Cardiff University in 2006 with a degree in Optometry and Vision Sciences, and worked in independent, high street practice for several years. I returned to Cardiff University in 2014 to start my PhD, investigating optimum stimulus parameters for the identification of visual field loss and progression in glaucoma. On completion of my PhD, I joined Aston Optometry School, where I currently work as a postdoctoral researcher.
My main research interests are visual perception, and how this is affected by disease and/or optical corrections.
